PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
 CPTD Orientation and Sign-up for Principals, Deputy Principals
and Schools
 Targets for Schools: 25 851, Principals and Deputy Principals: 40
747
 The targets were initially planned and approved in the 2012/13 APP with an understanding
that the CPTD system implementation would start at the beginning of the 2012/13
financial year.
 The implementation of the CPTD Management system did not take place as planned due
to other systems and processes (as per the CPTD Status Report: A report based on the
pilot July 2012) that needed to be reviewed and updated first before full roll out takes
place.

Subsequently, the CPTD implementation plan was approved by Council in November 2012.
This meant that the activities in the implementation plan (for example, the
principals/deputy principals and schools sign-ups) could only start at the beginning of 2013
(which is also the last quarter of the 2012/13 financial year).
 Therefore the first three quarters of the 2012/13 financial year were spent on planning
and preparations for the phased-in implementation process.
CPTD ORIENTATION AND SCHOOL
SIGN-UP
Establishment and Capacity Building of a National Orientation
and Sign-up Team:
 The team has been established and capacitated to assist SACE and the 9
PEDs in implementing the CPTD system in provinces and more
specifically in Orientating and Signing-up Principals and Deputy
Principals.
 The team consists of SACE, DBE, 9 PEDs, national teacher unions,
National Independent School Association (NAISA), and South African
Principals Association (SAPA).
CPTD ORIENTATION AND SCHOOL
SIGN-UP

NAISA, SGBs)
 Visits to the SGs / Heads of Departments in the 3 provinces (Western cape, Northwest,
and Gauteng) to also share the CPTD implementation plan, clarify roles and
responsibilities, and identify areas of collaboration for

CPTD Orientation and Sign-Up Sessions
 Phased-in implementation is done according to the three cohorts:
Principals and Deputies (2014), HODs (2015) and PL1 Teachers (2016)
 All the cohorts must be orientated and sign-up for the CPTD System a
year before their three year CPTD cycle starts (e.g. Principals and
Deputy Principals’ orientation and sign-up takes place in 2013 and their
three year CPTD cycle starts in January 2014)
CPTD ORIENTATION AND SCHOOL
SIGN-UP ACHIEVEMENTS
 The 10 Principals and Deputy Principal CPTD orientation sessions held
focused on:

CPTD ORIENTATION AND SCHOOL SIGN-UP
ACHIEVEMENTS
Purpose of Signing-Up for the CPTD System

fields / variables for teacher education and development purposes (link ups with SA SAMS,
EMIS, SACE Registration)
 Create individual CPTD Accounts / Records of principals and deputy principals/schools’

 Provide individual educators and schools with login details through an sms (username and
password) so that they can utilise the CPTD self-service portal to:
 Update their personal details;

participated in (including the PD Points earned)

CPTD ORIENTATION AND SCHOOL
SIGN-UP ACHIEVEMENTS
Actual Sign-Ups (January – March 2013)
 545 principals and deputy principals and 29 Schools signed-up for
the CPTD Management system.
 The CPTD orientation and sign-up sessions planned jointly with
Northwest, Free State, and Mpumalanga Provincial Education
Departments, for the last quarter of the financial, were postponed due
to teacher union disengagement with DBE, PEDs, and SACE.
 This had a direct bearing on the number of principals and deputy
principals participating in the CPTD Orientation Sessions and SigningUp.
EVALUATED AND ENDORSED
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
ACTIVITIES
 80 Professional development activities were endorsed. The majority of theses
activities/programmes come from the private providers and few from HEIs
 A catalogue of 260 SACE endorsed professional development and 60 approved providers
has been developed and is available on the SACE website.
 In addition, an advert has been placed at the end of January 2013 to invite more providers
to apply for provider approval and PD activity endorsement. The advert focused more on
providers and activities dealing with SMT/ Management and Leadership related activities /
programmes in preparation for the CPTD phased in implementation from January 2014.
 From the advert, 33 providers applied for provider approval. 62 applications were
received for activity/programme endorsement.
 Out of the 69 PD activities / programmes received, 51 were evaluated in March 2013. The
evaluated activities were forwarded to the Endorsement Committee for endorsement in
April 2013.
POLICY AND RESEARCH
 Analysis of the Principals and Deputy Principals Professional
Development Needs:
 Determining the specific professional development needs of
Principals and Deputy Principals for purposes of informing the PD
activities / programmes developed and offered by the provider
community (demand-based system rather than supply-based).
 An instrument in the form of a questionnaire was developed and
400 questionnaires have already been administered in the CPTD
Orientation and sign-up sessions and various educational gatherings.
POLICY AND RESEARCH
 An initial analysis indicates the following as the most important needs
identified (the top five included the following):
 Financial Management
 Computer Literacy
 Providing Leadership, Mentoring, Support and
Development to Staff
 Managing Quality of Teaching and Learning
 Training on Changes in Legislation/Policies.
POLICY AND RESEARCH
 National survey on internal teacher migration in line with the revised

questionnaire
CPTD System Implementation Planning –approved by EXCO and
Council in November 2012;
Provider Capacity Research Programme - a joint collaboration between
SACE and the Flemish Government’s VVOB. The research has been
conceptualised and approved by Council as well. Data collection will start in the
new financial year.
Produced the CPTD Status Report: A report based on the pilot study
(June 2012);
Researched and Developed the Professional Development Portfolio Guidelines
and Templates for Principals and Deputy Principals in support of the CPTD
system. Portfolio available online through the CPTD self-service portal as well.
POLICY AND RESEARCH

Analysis of Providers and Professional Development activities submitted to SACE for Approval
and Endorsement Purposes:
 To identify existing gaps with regards to areas of specialisation, location of providers and the
provider sector (e.g. government departments, Higher Education Institutions, Private Providers
etc).
 In addition, the analysis looked at amount of management and leadership related programmes
available in the database in preparation for the CPTD implementation 1st cohort.
 Preliminary findings indicate that:
 The majority of providers are private providers, followed by the Higher Education
Institutions and the rest.
 Furthermore, the majority of providers received are concentrated in Gauteng, Western
Cape, and Kwazulu-Natal.
 The PD activities covered different areas of specialisation.
 There were limited programmes on special education needs programmes.
 This pattern might change as more provider and activity applications are received.
POLICY AND RESEARCH
